Kylian Mbappe is one of the best footballers in the world right now, despite being just 22. The French world cup winner has been Paris Saint Germain’s top performer this season, and hence, every club in the world would love to have him on their side. Considering the fact that his contract with PSG expires in six months, rumors are already on the rise.

Mbappe has been regularly linked with Real Madrid as he was a fan of the club growing up, who idolized Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo. However, there are very few clubs who have the opportunity to sign him, and Premier League club Tottenham are sadly not one of them.

Kylian Mbappe turns down Tom Holland’s idea to join Spurs

Marvel superstar Tom Holland, who plays the role of Spiderman, attended this year’s Ballon d’Or ceremony to promote his new movie ‘Spiderman: No Way Home.’ Notably, he met Kylian Mbappe at the ceremony and made a hilarious revelation about their meet, in an interview recently.

We met Mbappe, and I actually asked Mbappe. I said – ‘Hey! Nice to meet you.’ He was really friendly, I said – ‘Mate, you have to come to Tottenham’ – and he just burst out laughing,” Holland said.

Mbappe’s response was instant, and perhaps a bit harsh, as the forward laughed it off and called the entire thing impossible.

No, impossible. That’s impossible!” Mbappe laughed.

Mbappe and his form for Paris Saint Germain

Mbappe has been PSG’s top scorer this season with 13 goals in 23 games. Moreover, the young forward has also contributed with 12 assists at the same time. He has scored goals in both Ligue 1 and the UEFA Champions League and has proven his caliber as one of the best in the world.

There’s a genuine possibility that Mbappe might leave PSG for Real Madrid at the end of the season. But if the French club do win the UCL finally, he might just stay for another glorious tenure.

Notably, they can eliminate part of their threat by beating Real Madrid in the Round of 16. But well, that’s not going to be an easy task now, is it?
